In this tutorial we will show you how to protect your osCommerce website using the htaccess / htpasswd means. After installing osCommerce, you may see a message stating "This osCommerce Online Merchant Administration Tool installation is not additionally secured through htaccess/htpasswd means," which can be corrected in the Admin panel of osCommerce.
This htaccess/htpasswd protection creates an additional layer of security that can help stop people from attempting to access the Admin portion of your osCommerce eshop. This is because they would have to get through this first layer of password protection before they could even attempt to access your osCommerce Admin panel.
How to Secure Your osCommerce with htaccess Password Protection:
